I was diagnosed with PBC back in Dec 2015 due to elevated LFT's, raised GGT and AMA of 10.5. I started on URSO immediately and since I have also been taking a herbal tincture. For the last 6 months (2 tests) my bloods have been normal and last time my .AMA was 9. My GGT is still slightly above normal but reducing all the time and almost within the normal range.
My question is...is this the URSO (or herbal stuff) working...or is there a chance I don't have PBC. Also, can PBC be reversed if caught early enough as it seems I was luckily caught very early. I'm also wondering whether it's the URSO causing the itching I'm getting. I didn't suffer with it before I started on the mediction. I'm also wondering whether I need to take the urso anymore. I'm tempted to try 6 months without it and see what the next 6 month blood test shows?
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
I'm obviously delighted, but I can't say I feel any better in myself as I still have the odd spell of itching at night which leaves me very tired and I still feel more tired than I used to pre diagnosis.
